(NEWSER) – And Twitter claims Olympic victim No. 2. Unlike triple jumper Voula Papachristou, who got the bootfrom her Greek team after tweeting a racist remark about African immigrants before even making it to the Games, Switzerland’s Michel Morganella did manage to play at the Olympics. But yesterday’s soccer game against South Korea was what led to his undoing. The defender apparently had a tough time stomaching his team’s 2-1 loss to the country, and took to Twitter to share the following, per the Evening Standard: ”I want to beat up all South Koreans! Bunch of mentally handicapped retards!” The AP reports that he also tweeted that South Koreans “can go burn” and referred to them as a “bunch of mongoloids.” The 23-year-old is on his way home, and explained his behavior thusly: “After the disappointing result and the reaction from Korea that followed, I made a huge error. I wish to apologize to the people in South Korea and their team, but also to the Swiss delegation and Swiss football in general. I obviously accept the consequences for my actions.” His Twitter account has since been deleted.
“I want to beat up all South Koreans! Bunch of mentally handicapped retards!” Now that is a fucking tweet right there. Sounds like something I’d say while watching at home. Probably could have gotten away with an apology but the “mongoloids can go burn” probably put the nail in the coffin. Imagine training for 4 years and then you call South Koreans retards and its all down the drain? Dude should just become a blogger where you can make fun of Asians all day every day with zero repercussions.
